Judge, Sarah Taylor, Managing Editor of the Oxford Mail said, 'It was incredibly difficult to choose an overall winner, so I did not choose one, I chose two.'

Nursing assistant Tracey Roberts said she was 'blown away' after being awarded the Hospital Heroes individual award. Tracey was nominated by Fraser Proudfoot whose grandfather was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital's emergency assessment unit in June. He said Miss Roberts treated his grandfather with 'real compassion' and helped him regain some of his confidence.

Winner two

  • Mr Bob Sharp, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Consultant orthopaedic surgeon, Bob Sharp was nominated by Jamie Williams, 23 who said she felt 'eternally grateful' he helped save her legs from amputation, saying that Dr Sharp's continued care enabled her to 'live a normal life'.

Mr Sharp said, 'I feel humbled. It's really fantastic to work at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. It should be Jamie getting the award for her attitude to life in the face of adversity.'

Upper Gastrointestinal team
